The Academic Excellence Awards are given at our degree celebration each year. The awards are based on grade point average as calculated in March for graduating students.
This award is given at our degree celebration each year to graduating students who have greatly contributed to the life of the college and university. These students embody the values and teachings of the School of Integrative Studies and show the promise of using what they’ve learned to make the world a better place. Students are nominated by faculty or other students or can self-nominate when the call for nominations is made near the start of the spring semester each year.
The purpose of the Award is to provide support for students majoring in Integrative Studies (INTS) within the School of Integrative Studies (SIS) to buy textbooks. Recipients must demonstrate characteristics of perseverance and generosity; traits exemplified by Ms. Howard’s late parents Surya and Cecil.
